Entergy’s Deployment and Integration of Synchro Phasor Technology project is deploying phasor measurement units (PMUs), phasor data concentrators (PDCs), and state of the art decision support tools across Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, and non-ERCOT portions of east Texas. These capabilities will enhance grid visibility of the bulk power system in near real-time, enable detection of disturbances which may produce instabilities or outages, and facilitate sharing of information with neighboring regional control areas. Additionally, the project will focus on training and education throughout the operations and engineering groups at Entergy to provide the foundational learning required to implement these advanced tools.
- 41 Phasor Measurement Units across 21 Substations
